Performance Monitoring and Flexible Goal-Directed Action in Humans: Neuroanatomical, Physiological and Molecular Foundations
The independent junior research group 'Cognitive Neurology' investigates how cognitive functions of the human brain facilitate flexible goal-directed behavior.
In order to answer the question of how performance monitoring and subsequent behavioral adjustments are implemented in the human brain, we employ a broad spectrum of research methods both in healthy subjects as well as neurological, neurosurgical and psychiatric patients. This investigative strategy enables us to span the array from molecular mechanisms to systemic factors subserving action outcome optimization. The Cognitive Neurology team uses
